In the communication industries of today, change is the new normal. This survey is designed to examine the roles and status of communication professionals, including the types of positions they hold, the role mentoring has played in their careers and their access to management opportunities in all of the major communication industries.   2017 SURVEY LINK – The Role and Status of Women in Communication Industries: Are Communication Professionals Achieving their potential?

This study and second national survey about the role and status of women in the communication industries, is being conducted by the Lillian Lodge Kopenhaver Center for the Advancement of Women in the College of Communication, Architecture & the Arts at Florida International University.

The survey is being distributed to leading professional associations in newspaper, magazine, online and broadcast journalism; advertising, and public relations. The survey was first administered in 2015 – the first time in at least a decade that all of these industries were being surveyed at the same time. This survey replicates the first survey.

The Kopenhaver Center will release the results of this study in early 2018 and publish them as well on its Kopenhaver Center website. Results also will be sent to the corresponding professional organizations that participated in this study.

Your participation is voluntary, and your responses are anonymous. The survey should take you no more than 20 minutes to complete.

If you have any questions about this survey, please contact Lillian A. Abreu at the Kopenhaver Center for the Advancement of Women in Communication, at or 305-919-4065
